An email like this from Rob Clapper and the Prince William Chamber of Commerce wouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but it sure would take the most recent lovefest for Communist dictator Fidel Castro to a whole new level.
We are deeply saddened by the passing of Hugo Chavez, who fought diligently for the dignity of Venezuela’s most vulnerable. Since 1999 this inspiring leader has worked tirelessly on behalf of the downtrodden, narrowing wealth disparity, and opening Venezuela’s economy to other nations in Central and South America to build an economic future for the region less dependent on any single economic power. We offer to the people of Venezuela our deepest condolences and our hopes that their country will continue to build upon the solid foundation that Hugo Chavez has laid for the future of his countrymen.
As a token of our esteem for the Bolivarian movement and its bright future, the Prince William Chamber of Commerce will soon be offering vacation excursions to Caracas, Merida and the Gulf Coast where business leaders can enjoy the splendid beauty of this wonderful country, meet the warm and wonderful peasants of Venezuela, and see for themselves the bright promise of Bolivarianism. Those who have enjoyed our destination packages to Cuba will especially appreciate the similarities and differences between these countries which share such strong cultural, social and political relationships. While federal regulations currently prohibit direct financial support towards bolstering the legacy of Hugo Chavez much like they proscribed direct contributions to support Fidel Castro, our economic engagement with the Venezuelan people will make a tangible difference towards their economic future.
We hope to finalize these arrangements in the coming days. Please check the chamber’s website at pwchamber.org for updates regarding this important symbol of our support for a true leader’s lasting legacy.
No, this email hasn’t actually been sent, and the Chamber hasn’t announced vacation packages to Venezuela like the ones they’ve set up for Cuba. Given the Chamber’s cheerleading for huge tax raises and efforts to support the economy of the region’s other Communist dictatorship, would it surprise anyone very much if they did?
